Should The NYC Marathon Go On?

While people are still without power and standing in line for hours to get 5 gallons of gas for their generator, the New York City Marathon goes on.

New York city mayor Michael Bloomberg says the marathon will “give people something to cheer about” after a “dismal week.”   Some New Yorkers say holding the race would be insensitive and divert police and other important resources when many are still suffering.

Bloomberg says Rudy Giuliani made the right decision to let the marathon continue after the September 2001 terrorist attack.  I fail to see the comparison, since 911 was 2 months before the marathon, not a week.

I have countless friends on Facebook that aren’t too happy and make good points.  What do you think?
